Ojai White Sage Hydrosol
Ojai White Sage Hydrosol
*UPDATE* With reverence and respect for the indigenous peoples of Southern California and particularly their long-time use of local White Sage, Ojai White Sage Hydrosol will be discontinued as we move through the remaining stock. We will continue to mindfully develop exciting new hydrosols with locally sourced plants and expand the hydrosol line up into 2019 and beyond! Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
It’s as if her musky fragrance evokes the hot desert earth which surrounds -- then releases the subtle brightness of her velvety leaves. White Sage is commonly used in spiritual ceremonies for purification. It uplifts, protects, encourages mental focus & is an energetic cleanser. Daily use balances the skin’s PH, deodorizes & has antibacterial effects on the skin. The White Sage is respectfully foraged in the sacred Topa Topa mountains of Ojai, CA. Potent.
Best Use: Mist your Hydrosol onto clean face or hands until saturated, and pat for ample hydration. For added moisture morning and night, follow by gently massaging a nourishing facial oil into the skin, and finish with another mist of your Hydrosol to lock in moisture. Your daily use restores the skin’s natural PH balance.
We recommend our Rosemary Bay Hydrosol as a harmonious, herbaceous sister spray to your Ojai White Sage Hydrosol.
Ingredients: 100% Steam distillation of ethically foraged, Ojai White Sage (Salvia Apiana)*

WHAT IS A HYDROSOL?
Hydrosols, also known as Distillates, are the subtle, and often aromatic waters resulting from slowly distilled plant material, and are some of nature's best antioxidants for the skin. Lovingly made using hand collected local spring water, combined with ethically wildcrafted and organically grown plant material, they are distilled in a traditional copper alembic still.
Alchemists from all over the world have performed transformational distillations in these traditional stills for over 3,000 years, and this artisan process still remains the same! The actual method of performing our distillations has a 5-7 hour duration, a much slower process compared to more commercialized modes of skin care production. What results, is a nutrient-rich, energetic, and authentic Hydrosol, containing the plant's own suspended micro particles of essential oil, plant acids, even a plant's specific essence and memory imprint. Each offers its own unique botanical remedy dependent on the plant distilled, thus leading to the reference that a Hydrosol is a hologram of the plant itself!
Hydrosols are incredibly gentle and well-suited for beings of all ages and sensitivities (including babies and pets alike). Wildcare Hydrosols are recommended as a daily facial toner, and play an important role in protecting and nourishing the skin from everyday pollutants. In addition to a being a supreme skin tonic, your Hydrosol may also be used as a holistic and energetic mist, scalp tonic, added to baths, and used in conjunction with our Clay Masks.
Store your Hydrosol in the refrigerator for extra-cooling skin relief.
Keep in a cool, dark place, and always out of direct sunlight, using within 1 year.
